Further to Derek’s observations on Villalobos’s ‘Enfants’ … Even though the sample is taken from a Christian Vander track, when I first heard ‘Enfants’ it reminded me of nothing so much as the piano on Nina Simone’s ‘Sinnerman’. It seems that I’m not the only one to make the association … If the similarity between the tracks is eerie, then this only adds to the strangeness of Simone’s already intensely uncanny song, which acquired even more weirdness last year when it was used by both David Lynch (in INLAND EMPIRE) and Timbaland (on the first track of his Shock Value LP).
